Notes Note 1 - SUMMARY STATEMENT OF FUND BALANCE OR RETAINED EARNINGS: Prior year actual figures are for fiscal year ended 12/31/13. The reason for the difference in Ending Fund Balance/Retained Earnings between our audited financial statements and this form is because “Expenditures for acquisition/construction of capital assets” ($15,952,164);“Repayments of principal borrowed” ($4,634,935) and "Purchases of investments" ($103,958) decreases on balance sheet line items on our audited financial statements. All of these items are shown as expenses on this form.

Note 2 - Per my phone conversation on 10/17/11 with Division of Administration Office, we are just beginning the budget process for 2015 and this budget will not be approved by our board until the December 2014 board meeting. As soon as the budgets are approved, I will update all budget info for 2015 under the "budgets" tab under column "Projected Year Estimated".
